As a followup to my earlier question on have a single hostname with multiple
A record, I want to understand a slightly different scenario. 3 hosts exist
with canonical A records:

hosta   A
hostb   A
hostc   A

My earlier question was whether one host could have more than one 
A record.  But say, I want to to this as follows:

test    A
test    A
test    A

Is this legit?  IOW, can a given *IP* appear in more than one A record? I realize 
that this does have the problem that the reverses would resolve to hostX not
